Eagle Watching Festivals for 2011

When the weather gets lousy, the eagle watching picks up. Eagles have to find open water to fish, so that forces them to lurk in large numbers over rivers and lakes–especially near power plants or dams, which break up the water. There are places to watch eagles from New York to California this weekend.

For eagle watches throughout the year, check out the 2011 AnimalTourism Guide to Eagle Watches & Festivals
